It's the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are just around the corner and that means plenty of time to sink your teeth in to a new series. Check out these five new shows coming to us in December:

V Wars

More than two years after The Vampire Diaries ended its run, actor Ian Somerhalder is back with another vampire series, V Wars.

But this time, Somerhalder will play a mortal instead. Dr Luther Swann is looking for a cure for a disease that turns people into vampires. Things get complicated when his best friend turns into one.

V Wars premieres Dec 5 on Netflix.

Truth Be Told

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer plays investigative reporter Poppy Parnell who helped put Warren Cave (Aaron Paul) behind bars for the murder of a father of two.

Now, more than 18 years later, new evidence suggest that Cave may have been innocent all along. The case gets reopened and Poppy must confront the man she may have mistakenly helped imprison.

Truth Be Told premieres Dec 6 on Apple TV+.

The Witcher

Wondering why there’s so much buzz about The Witcher? It is a TV adaptation of a popular Polish fantasy series by Andrzej Sapkowski, which has garnered a cult following since it was first published in the 1980s.

The Witcher chronicles the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter or the titular “witcher”, whose supernatural abilities strike terror into the hearts of monsters and men. Starring Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Jodhi May.

The Witcher premieres Dec 20 on Netflix.

You Season Two

Psychopath Joe (Penn Badgley) is at it again and is now looking for Love. Like literally. His new love interest is Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), an aspiring chef, who he meets after relocating from New York to Los Angeles.

You, which first came out last year, made waves when it depicted the creepy ways and extreme lengths its protagonist Joe went to win his crush Beck’s heart.

"At least one scene comes to mind that's gorier and scarier than anything we had in season one," co-creator Sara Gamble teases about the second season in an interview with LADbible. Yikes!

You Season Two premieres Dec 26 on Netflix.

At Eighteen

New student Choi Joon-woo (who was forced to transfer schools for a violation he didn’t commit) has decided to keep his head down when he arrives at his new high school.

But the quiet Choi soon finds his life upended when he meets his classmates - who he realises hides their own set of struggles behind their outward appearance. The coming-of-age drama stars Ong Seong-wu, Kim Hyang-gi and Shin Seung-ho.

At Eighteen is available on dimsum.
